Golden Boy Promotions announced Monday the signing of the WBA’s No. 1-ranked junior welterweight Ohara Davies (25-2, 18 KOs). Representing London, Davies is the mandatory challenger for the WBA 140-pound title currently held by Rolando Romero.

“Golden Boy is up there with the biggest promotional companies in the world of boxing, so I’m over the moon to sign a promotional deal with them,” Davies was quoted in a press release. “Also, to work with Oscar De la Hoya who was one of my childhood boxing heroes is great, and to be able to link up and win my first world title under him as my promoter is amazing. I’m going to be looking to make a statement and knock Rolly Romero out. From then on, I’ll be looking for the biggest names possible and being signed with Oscar De La Hoya. I believe they will deliver on that.”

Said Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions Oscar De La Hoya:

“We are in the business of making world champions, and we will make Ohara Davies one of them under our promotional family. He has the grit, determination and bad blood against Romero to fuel him as he campaigns for the WBA world title very soon. Keep an eye out for him!”
